everything they did to stop and perhaps ruin the reputation of chuck hagel for awhile. even after it was inevitable. they kept it up just to screw up the government, hurt its functioning, and smear a man. those are the facts. we'll document them. >>> finally kfc or chick-fil-a, bagels and croissants or doughnuts? are you what you eat? what you eat may be determined by who you vote for. isn't that interesting? we'll show the parallel how we go to fast food stores and vote. there is one. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> well, the republicans have put up the white flag on their opposition to the violence against women act. they decided their trimmed down version of the bill cannot pass. and it's a political loser. so they're now expected to pass the senate version of the bill and let the democrats have their way. the biggest issue was republican opposition to how the bill handled violence in tribal areas, believe it or not. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." the u.s. senate held its much anticipated hearing on banning military assault weapons today. j

secretary of defense. you served with chuck hagel. how do you think he will do? >> i think he will do well. chuck is a friend. he was a republican. i was a democrat. he served for 12 years of the 18 years i served in the senate. i think he's smart. he's capable. he knows defense and foreign policy issues. you know, here is a guy that fought on the battlefield, earned two purple hearts and was hectored during his nomination. you know, i thought what happened to him was pretty thoughtless in this process. >> bill: he was badly treated by his fellow republicans. unfairly, i believe. >> these are people who worked with him 12 years. he would go to their caucus once a week. presumably, all friend and acquaintances and i think for political reasons, he took it on the chin during that process. but he's now there and he's going to be a good secretary of defense in my judgment. >> bill: do you think he can repair -- mend his fences? >> i do. chuck is smart and capable and i think he will do well. >> bill: if he were in the senate today, how would you vote on the sequester? what do you think the sen
